This level/type of error can be many things:
CPU Unstable Clock or Low Voltage
Memory without enough Voltage
IMC voltage too low.
CPU-NB voltage is the IMC voltage.
I am always assuming when I read threads that stability at stock was already determined, and that the memory did indeed pass MemTest86. So while I didn't mention it, it is certainly a possibility.
The reason you test and stabilize each OC individually is why you don't have to juggle all these voltages trying to troubleshoot.
If the CPU is stable at 4 GHz, and you raise CPU-NB speeds up which no longer makes you stable. The culprit would be the CPU-NB.
When you have an OC on the CPU, the Memory clocks, the IMC, and voltages adjusted on all three. You have 6 possible avenues to troubleshoot, so 6 variables. Not the best approach.
That doesn't include the dozen or so memory timing options, which if you go to low, no voltage in the world can make you stable, and it will drive you nuts trying to figure it out.
I believe the best out of the box (thermal paste, heatsink, and stock fans) is still the NH-D14 Noctua. Its a high quality Austrian heatsink with about a gillion awards. Its very huge though.
That CoolIT I have not seen reviews, but its predecessor did fairly decent. The H70 does work better than the H50/A50 and H50 revision 2.
I would save your money and actually get a RASA kit. I know its not England, but look around for something similar. Real water cooling is infinitely superior to the all-in-one kits.http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11743/ex-wat-159/XSPC_Rasa_750_RS240_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_Hot_Item.htmlEdited by RagingCain - 4/1/11 at 7:51am
